These pickles are amazing, whether you're putting them on your burgers or eating them straight out of the jar (which I do often!). They are the absolute easiest things to make~and your friends and family will think you really spent hours on them. I won't tell. I promise!
Fire & Ice Pickles
(Taste of Home)
2 jars (32 oz. each) dill pickle slices or spears
4 cups sugar
1 tbsp. hot pepper sauce
1/2 tsp. crushed red pepper flakes
3 garlic cloves, peeled*
Drain and discard juice from pickles. In a large bowl, combine pickles, sugar, pepper sauce, and pepper flakes; mix well. Cover and let stand 2 hours, stirring occasionally. Spoon pickles and liquid into 3 pint-size jars; add a garlic clove to each. Cover and refrigerate 1 week before serving. Store in the refrigerator.
*I used 3 tsp. of chopped garlic and put it in w/the whole batch.
